Pat and Bill Storrer’s Up North Michigan Wines By The Bay, is a comprehensive portrayal of the Northern Michigan wine industry of Leelanau and Old Mission peninsulas of northwest Michigan – describing not only the region’s distinctive climate and its wineries, wines and grapes but also the determined and dedicated personalities who make it happen.

Working at a remarkable level of detail, Storrer supports his research with extensive photography and maps. He brings the whole to life in conversations with owners, winemakers, growers and support organizations.

Not content with nor losing sight of the “romance of the grape”, Storrer delves into the work and the risk – and thus the value – behind a glass of wine.
